Linus Torvalds takes a break from kernel development.
Together with the release of the Release Candidate for Linux 4.19, Torvalds had a very special announcement in store: the still leading Linux developer wants to take a break from the active work on the kernel. The reason for this is not another project, as was previously the case with Git version management. Much more, the 48-year-old wants to dedicate his own behavior.
Meanwhile, Torvalds is transferring the development for Linux 4.19 to Greg Kroah-Hartman, one of the most prominent Linux kernel developers alongside Torvalds. This ensures the latest release of the new Linux kernel version. However, the organization of the development of the kernel is not known.
Torvalds remains Linux
In the e-mail, Torvalds further states that he does not want to fully withdraw from kernel development. On the contrary, he would continue to work very well on the Linux project, as he has done for three decades. How long the time-out of the main developer will remain, however, remains unclear.
